    Has anyone cleared up what happens if you get a diamond and signature of the same card ?

    I'd kinda hope you get to reroll the signature to a different signature then

    Hmm - superficially it looks pretty awful, but if you do this against a full (or nearly full) board you're locking your opponent out for quite a while.  I think this might be a lot better than it looks.

    Fully expecting that on day 1 we'll see a 3 deck meta of utter brokenness: triple frost DK, triple unholy DK, triple blood DK and everything else getting trounced. 

    It will be amazing fun for 48 hours until literally everyone's either netdecked or given up then we'll all be screaming for nerfs.

    posted a message on New Signature Cards - What Are They and How Do I Get Them?

    Um, what is the point of having exclusive premium full art cards and then (a) removing all the color and (b) stamping a name banner right across the middle of the art?

    I'd just about got over the initial garish horror of diamond cards and I've started to appreciate them now, but these I don't see myself ever feeling good about.

    posted a message on Mini set opinions

    Even if the cards look mediocre at first, it's almost always worth buying the mini set - you only need one of the legendaries to be playable for it to be worth it, and meanwhile you've insured yourself against opening the bad legendaries in the set.  

    However, in terms of gameplay, I'm not seeing a lot to get excited about other than the mage cards.  The two 'good' legendaries look like they're trying to keep you playing an actual game of hearthstone rather than annihilate the opponent's board or win on the spot, which is what top end stuff needs to do.  So many of the mini set commons/rares are total filler.

    Kinda wish they'd put in an "I can't be arsed with this, just give me the pack" button, or give you the pack for playing a game even if you lose.  After hitting a run of bad luck, that's 15 minutes I won't be getting back.

    posted a message on Announcing Runestones - With Usage and Frequent Questions

    There is a slight benefit to players, I think - provided you can purchase Runestones on the online blizz store, you can do foreign currency purchases on everything that uses runestones.

    Right now, foreign currency purchases aren't available on in-game shop bundles that don't appear in the blizz store.

    posted a message on Fish or whale?

    The way modern freemium economy games tend to work, there's not a lot of difference between a 'whale' and a long standing FTP (or low spender) in terms of resources accumulated. 

    Someone who's played regularly for several years will have accumulated packs/gold/dust over time, which translates into having whatever decks they want on day 1 of an expansion - no different from a more recent player who spends money.  

    I've bought at least a cheap pre-order every set and rarely missed a daily/weekly quest or free pack, and hoarded cards.  Hardly makes me a whale in terms of spending (probably equivalent to a netflix sub) but getting a recent account to a similar position would require a really uncomfortable amount of money.

    posted a message on Grand Masters free packs bug

    I've always found the youtube packs much more prone to random failure than twitch, which let's you track exactly how much time it's logged.  With luck, you'll get the packs eventually, but be prepared that they might not arrive.  I missed one of the two packs last week for no good reason :(
